Falcon wing doors open access to the backseats, seven adults are able to sit comfortably in it and it has a theoretical range of 400 kilometers. This is the basic scoop on the new Tesla X. 


Standard with all-wheel drive and a 90 kWh battery providing 400 kilometers of range on a single charge should be the main bait, though another tempting fact may be that the fastest version is in fact ludicrously fast, reaching 100kmh in just 3.8 seconds. Model X offers seating for seven adults and all of their gear – or six, depending on configuration. The floor-mounted battery lowers the center of gravity so it's almost impossible to roll over. Another reason why this is one of the safest SUVs out there is that Model X continually scans the surrounding roadway with camera, radar and sonar systems, providing the driver with real-time feedback to avoid collisions. In addition, an active spoiler helps with optimizing visibility, highway efficiency and stability.

Falcon Wing doors (Hello, DeLorean!) make it easy to access the second and third row seats, with traditional doors not capable of opening fully when parked next to another car.

Currently, Tesla X is available in two main configurations, the baseline 90D and the faster-accelerating P 90D. The first one is powered by a 259hp front motor and the other one by a 503hp rear motor. Expected top speed of either vehicle is no less than 250 kmh.

In the US a well-equipped version of the Signature Series (the first 'samples') goes for 132,000 dollars, but at least all the electricity from the public charging stations is still free of charge. The difference in price between Tesla S and Tesla X is supposedly around 5,000 dollars.
